Need product ID and model.

Is the bezel in good condition?  I assume your system is not the "slot" type.

 

Most of the replacement HP drives lack the bezel since the color and shape can vary.

Some bezels are more difficult to remove than others and it is easy to snap one of the latches and leave the bezel loose 

You will be lucky to get one that has a matching bezel. It will also be used.  A replacement will be under $20 but you must use your old bezel.

 

I recommend a USB 3 type external optical drive

DVD-rw are as low as $22 USD and Blueray/DVD-rw as low as $60 USD

 

A full Blueray-RW USB3 is $100+ USD.  Note that windows 10 media player cannot play Blueray disks.

if interested in Blueray capability post back here and I  can recommend.
